In the dark | Nolcha Fox

of early morning

stars stud silence ears.

Black the cloak

that warms the waiting

for the sunrise to appear.

Watch the day bruise | Nolcha Fox

into night

Today is a dog | Nolcha Fox

with gravel in her mouth

and a bad case

of indigestion.

They sit in the break room | Nolcha Fox

drinking coffee,

eating donuts,

as cigar exhaust

obscures the DO

NOT SMOKE sign,

their voices gravel

underneath

the wheels of

the hearse that

takes them to

an early grave.

The sliding glass door | Nolcha Fox

is a good place to watch the wind

shake red leaves free to fall 

on a rain-soaked landing,

while I, dry and warm, 

drink my coffee.

Dogs and buttered toast aren’t cats | Nolcha Fox

because they land wrong side down.

You are a cat, elegant

in words, in motion.

I’m not fooled

by slick persuasion.

At heart you are 

a dirty dog.

Your toast is buttered

with margarine.

Pocket Cake | Nolcha Fox

Cake in my pocket

to feed the squirrels

in the college square.

Free food,

free tuition,

squirrels are much smarter

than me.

Belts in the Sky | Nolcha Fox

You say if I look carefully,

I’ll see belts, the buckles gleaming

in the evening sky.

Do you mean the asteroid belts?

And heavens, did they lose their pants?

Wild Parade | Nolcha Fox

Cottonwoods line the street,

tossing white confetti

over wild turkeys strutting

in the middle of the road

to a marching band

only they hear.

Inverted | Nolcha Fox

In the mirror

world inverted,

where left is right,

right is left.

Does time run backwards

behind the glass?
